Really? And you know this because the number of Perl/Tk questions outnumber the number of web questions asked on Perlmonks? I think nowadays there's only one GUI that dominates the Perl world, and it's HTML/CSS/javascript.

That being said, the few times I've needed a pure desktop GUI, Tk was the best I found. It's old and primitive, but it works with minimal headaches on pretty much every platform you can think of.

    Platforms I immediately think of: the web browser, tablets, smart phones, JVM. Granted, Perl doesn't run on them either (but that's something Jesse would like to see fixed), but thinking "pretty much every platform you can think of" are Windows/Linux/Other Unix/Mac OSses running their GUIs is very 1990s. The world has moved on. "Platform" nowadays is so much more.

    I don't know any platform that runs Perl/Tk, but doesn't run a graphical web browser. But I bet I'll see dozens of platforms fully capable of running web browsers, but not Perl/Tk in my walk from the office to the train station.

      I don't know any platform that runs Perl/Tk, but doesn't run a graphical web browser.

      Point of Sale systems.

      I'm not claiming that every POS in every store you walk past runs either Perl or Tk, let alone the combination, but they're mostly not running web browsers.
